Blink 182 Singer Tom DeLonge

SAVES Stage Crasher's Life

... With a Towel

A disoriented six-legged fan crashed the stage at a Blink 182 concert Saturday night in Pennsylvania -- and singer Tom DeLonge stopped the ENTIRE concert just to save its life ... using nothing but a towel.

By all accounts, the singer really winged it.

The Kaiser thinks the Praying Mantis should've eaten Tom's face. Plot twist!

A towel? I guess he's afraid of bugs. They are pretty harmless. Whenever one wanders into my office, I approach it from behind so it won't grab at me and pick it up by the thorax (right behind its forelegs) with my thumb and index. Then, I place it gently outside on the windowsill.

Lol. This is the first article I have read on TMZ where I really think they need something better to talk about.

Do an investigation on the Selena Gomez Cursing video to see if it's real or something.

Also, don't over exaggerate the title of your posts. Really annoying...

Getting a little thin and desperate on the headliners TMZ. This and the WWE/mouse story. uh yeah. Wow, this is as ground breaking as the time Kim Kardashian was seen brushing her hair.

I was at this show and I thought it was sweet of him! The mantis was all over the stage and they didn't want to smoosh him. Is it TMZ worthy? Not really.

Ozzy would have bit the head off and spit it into the crowd.
